Excellent quality for the price!

Comments about Richeson Plein Air Travel Brush Set:
Like the other reviewers, I was nicely surprised by the quality of these inexpensive travel brushes! I really wanted Escoda's or Da Vinci's travel set, but those aren't in my budget at the moment, so I ordered these instead. I am not sorry! I was planning to keep them in my travel watercolor kit, but I find myself pulling them out to use when I am home.The rounds work extremely well: hold a point, have nice spring, and put down a decent amount of pigment. I'm not as pleased with the flats in the kit, but that is only because I am comparing them to sables. I haven't found a reason to pack an additional flat sable, for these will do a decent wash in a pinch.I'd order this set again in a heartbeat! Happy to have found such a great kit at an excellent price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My first time trying this brand
I'm very happy with this purchase. The brushes are well made, and behave nicely, holding water and color, and then snapping back to shape. I'm using these in house at the moment, but hope to expand my watercolor sketching to the outdoors. The case will be great for transport. Recommended.

This set is quite nice. The case is sturdy and well made. The brushes are pretty darn good! (I use Golden Open Acrylics.) They do have very short handles, which I like, though some artists may not. The one thing I wonder about is if there are replacement brushes available. I looked and haven't found any. Regular short handled brushes are a little too long to fit in the case. When these brushes wear out, I may trim off the ends of the handles of some new brushes, as the case is very nice and will out live the included brushes.
A must have when traveling with your paints
Remind recommended and I like to take my water colors with me and now I can just grab these and go.
Amateur painter's dream come true
Keeps you organized, very practical and all the brushes an amateur needs to get started. Excellent value. Love the stand up back

Excellent for Traveling!
from Walla Walla, WA
I travel light and keep a sketch journal. First I tried taking my regular length brushes, then tried the plastic handle brushes where you fill the handle up with water, then finally discovered these! They paint beautifully and are easy to carry around. I love them!

Good range of brushes. Great for travel.
from Cedar Falls, Iowa
I bought this to have a separate set of brushes for my casein work. Now I'm thinking of buying another set for my watercolor travel kit.

Bought to Test-Recommending to Students!
from Orange County, CA
I send my students to Dick Blick all the time to purchase supplies and when I saw these brushes I realized they were a good deal, but was not familiar with the quality... so I ordered a set.These are good brushes! Shorter handles for travel and a good sturdy case. My thoughts were to resell this set to a student but I've changed my mind and I'm keeping them for myself. (They can get their own!) :)
